Review Erectile Dysfunction Drugs – Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn

Viagra is prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction.  This is not news to anyone.  There are other drugs used to treat impotence including Cialis, Levitra and Staxyn.  I have tried all five of these medications – Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn – and I live to tell the tale.  I don’t like to rely heavily on drugs and medication to treat ED, which is why many of my other posts focus more on the natural remedies that I have found to be beneficial for my condition.  However these prescriptions do work and are good to take on an occasional basis.  Below I’ve review these three impotence drugs for men looking to weigh the pros and cons of each prescription.
